Every room uses doors, windows and materials to visually and spatially integrate inside and outside spaces, enhance the views and vistas and bathe the interior in natural light. The structure is exposed and interior materials contrast elegance and strength, the exterior has a natural palette of materials- concrete, corten and cedar- left to patina and blend into the California flora. Details are expressive of materials and craft, of the designer and craftsman.
